Lily King, 2020 recommending author

Read ME is a statewide community read that gets Maine adults all reading two books recommended by a well-known Maine author.

For 2020, our recommending author Lily King has chosen Roughhouse Friday by Jaed Coffin and The Vigilance of Stars by Patricia O’Donnell. The summer reading season will culminate at the end of August with a special episode of Maine Calling, broadcast in front of a live audience (date and location TBD).
